The mystery continues… I’ve had more pregnancy symptoms in the last 2 days than in the previous 2 weeks! Let me say from the outset that I do not think I’m pregnant, but the momentum created by the narrative of my situation keeps me skipping along.
We took ourselves off for the weekend to a farm by the sea, close to Rosslare. DS LOVES animals, so spent the weekend shrieking with excitement, as much at cats and birds as at goats and cows. We survived a restaurant (DS is 21 months, but fairly easy-going), and BD’d just for fun!!!
I mentioned a +OPK on Sat. It wasn’t quite + but a fairly strong line. Had another one on Sat night, and, mindful of the fact that OPKs can test + for HCG, I tried again on Sun morning – a lighter line. Meanwhile, I had had fairly painful breasts all Sat night, and this continued yesterday. Interesting.
Brown spotting started yesterday morning, and has continued today. I tried another OPK yesterday evening and got a very faint line, so I don’t think it indicates anything other than the fact that my system is out of whack. My breasts are still sore but not as much as they were yesterday. The only other symptom (of what?) I’ve had today is this – I was giving DS his breakfast when a huge wave of nausea came over me, I thought it would pass but it didn’t and I had to leg it upstairs and ended up retching into the toilet.
Sounds good you might think, but there’s more. I found another HPT. My GP gave it to me when she confirmed my pregnancy last month. I’d put it away and forgotten about it – felt like an alcoholic who’d just discovered a bottle of whiskey at the back of the wardrobe! BFN. As BFN as you can get. It did show a very faint line when I checked it about an hour later, but as I’m quite expert at analysing HPTs these days, I can confirm that it was an evaporation line.
So I’m (almost certainly) not pregant, and I may or may not have had AF. Because of this, I’m slightly concerned that I may not ovulate in the next few weeks, or if I do, I may miss it – I used way too many OPKs over the weekend! Will just have to rely on my old mate, CM, to keep me informed. Will let you know.
